At 528 Wellness, Sheri and Joseph Shields optimize bodily operations and clear interiors of harmful toxins with an assortment of vigor-boosting treatments. FDA-approved TurboSonic whole-body vibration platforms headline the shop's lineup, shimmying bodies with sound waves that activate contractions in various muscle groups, spur metabolism, and help biceps find the bass their debut album lacked. Tootsies wiggle side-to-side with a chi spinal relaxation machine, which increases range of motion and encourages oxygen absorption for more tranquil sleep with passive aerobic exercise. Thermal massage treatments ease aches with gliding rollers and radiant far-infrared energy, and can be accentuated by red or blue LED therapy to promote skin-smoothing collagen production or eliminate acne-causing bacteria. 528 Wellness also lures environmental toxins out through footbaths that use ionic action to draw impurities from the feet in much the same way pool lifeguards eliminate robotic invaders by goading them to cannonball into the deep end.
At age 26, Andrew Glanville attended a community presentation by a massage therapist. As Andrew watched, the therapist was able to provide immediate relief to a friend's distressed shoulder. This display of healing inspired Andrew to pursue a career as a doctor of chiropractic. Now as the head of Glanville Family Chiropractic and Wellness, Andrew—or Dr. Drew—helps relieve migraines, joint stiffness, and whiplash, among other conditions. He employs primarily conservative treatment methods, avoiding drugs and surgery as much as possible to treat neck pain, also called anterior head carriage, and back pain, also called having a really sore back.

University Chiropractic's two licensed massage therapists use smooth, heated stones to help relieve tight muscles over the course of 60 minutes. Smooth basalt stones are most commonly used because of their ability to rapidly absorb and retain heat, like a silver spoon recently struck by lightning. Once stones are properly placed, massage experts rub them across the patient's body to soften sharp-edged muscle pain. Appointments are necessary, so be sure to schedule in advance.
At Back to Basics Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic Gary Peters sets bodies on the path to wellness by identifying the underlying causes of pain rather than merely alleviating symptoms. The licensed chiropractor has seen his share of troubled vertebrae, many of which have led him to believe that problems ranging from muscular pain to digestive disorders can be traced directly back to the spinal column. In order to repair these conditions, Dr. Gary thoroughly evaluates clients with external examinations. His treatments and prescribed exercises help correct back problems, alleviate migraines, and heal bodies after sports injuries.
